GARY THE GOAT PASSES AWAY.

Dear Gary the goat fans, Jimbo here.

Unlike my post on April Fool's day in 2016 this news is not a joke. Gary died tonight aged six (on Thurs 16th of November at about 10:30pm) from euthanasia - after vets diagnosed a bleed from an acute heart tumour.

The vets drained it once but when it came back 24hrs later we decided that Gary needed to go out peacefully and pain free instead of being conscious while he couldn't breathe.

I've been filming for the the last few days while travelling over 1500kms between three different vets. We thought it was just bloat at first - but it's very hard to diagnose a goat who doesn't give a f*ck.

Anyway, I'll maybe put up a video with some more details after I've had some sleep, sorted out death stuff.... and got back to a girlfriend and two kids I've left somewhere in the middle of QLD.

This could take a while though.

Plus I know when I do eventually get round to editing the last video of Gary up, I'm gunna wish that I was instead filming St Peter trying to get Gary off the cigarette butts and in thru the Pearly Gates.

We'll all miss you Gary. You gave so much happiness to so many people. Rest In Peace, mate.
